Pork sausage, ground beef and plenty of beans make this chili a hearty meal-starter. I keep the versatile mixture in serving-size containers in my freezer at all times. I can quickly warm up bowls of it on coldor use it to fix chili dogs, chili tacos and more.
Some say you can have your cake and eat it, too...I say eat your chili and the bowl, too! I work the "graveyard shift" at the post office in Portland. During those hours, there is no place to buy meals, so I often bring in dishes like this chili to share with co-workers.
With chops this good, you won’t have to rinse the plates before putting them in the dishwasher. Wine adds delectable flavor, and the meat falls from the bone. This dish is sure to initiate family members into the clean-plate club! —Kristina Wyatt, Catawba, Virginia
